Message from Sky & Telescope

The AAS staff (including staff of Sky and Telescope) are working remotely from their homes to support the social distancing efforts to contain COVID 19. While we are all working to support the S&T community, there may be delays in responding during this time. If you have a question or concern, please contact Camillia Taylor at [email protected].

This is a difficult time for the entire United States. Aero, our fulfillment partner, is based in Ohio. Aero provides fulfillment services for P&G. While they will continue to fulfill our orders, there may be a delay in shipping our products because they must give priority to medical, personal healthcare, and cleaning and sanitization products.

Planisphere, 40 Degrees North

By The Editors of Sky & Telescope

Format: Chart

SKU# S3249

Sky & Telescope's planisphere replots our iconic monthly star chart for use any time of the year. Along with our iconic constellation figures, we also include accurately marked star brightnesses and famous deep-sky objects. All planispheres suffer from distortion, especially toward the south, so we've included a second chart on the back that offers a less-distorted view of the southern sky. The full-color Star Wheel is easy to read in daylight or at night under a red flashlight. It even accommodates daylight-savings time.

This product is available at 30 degrees South, 30 degrees North, and 50 degrees North.

What Sky & Telescope's Camille Carlisle has to say:

"Our star wheel (also called a planisphere) is a great grab-and-go tool for exploring the night sky. It also makes a great gift for kids just getting interested in astronomy. (Just make sure to get the one for the correct latitude — don't give the 40 degrees north one to someone in the Southern Hemisphere!)"
